Dr Hoel saved my life starting in 2012 when my vascular problems came to light. He planned out and executed a surgical plan that has brought my blood flow issues back to almost normal. He worked with other surgeons in neurology and with my breast cancer surgeon to successfully plan a method of treatment and surgeries that rendered me healthy and cancer free. Dr. Hoel's caring attention to his patients makes a great difference in our attitudes being positive and having hope for a good outcome. He is simply an amazing doctor and surgeon.
